IMHO, your mother-in-law won't use computer, i guess. In general, Korean
women (above 40 years old) don't know about computer and Internet. 

Though if you have to prepare that, discuss with your wife in
first. Your wife will know very well about the state of your
mother-in-law's computing general. 

The following is just normal case. Korean need only Input Method program
such as Nabi under default X-Window system. That's enough to make
checking (writing) emails. Have a look korean/nabi in ports.
